Lactation Education Specialist Training 2018

**Attendance is mandatory for all 5 class dates including September 11, 12, 18, 19, 25
45-Hour Course Description

This lactation educator training series touches on all areas of the IBLCE Detailed Content Outline (for those preparing to sit for the IBCLC® Board Exam) and meets the Step 2 Baby-Friendly USA Staff Education Requirements, 2016 Edition.

Lactation educators work in many settings in our community, including WIC offices, hospitals, providing education alongside doula and midwifery services, and as volunteers. While lactation educators do not provide hands-on breastfeeding support without supervision, the scope of practice for a lactation educator does position the individual to provide prenatal breastfeeding education to groups and individuals, facilitate breastfeeding support groups, and to advocate for breastfeeding in the community and the public health realm.

Prerequisites for this course include a high school diploma or GED and a passion for elevating breastfeeding as a public health strategy to imrove disparities in health outcomes.

This 45-hour course in lactation education covers basic breastfeeding management techniques such as Positioning, Attachment, Physiology & Hormones of Breastfeeding, Milk Production, Common Breastfeeding Challenges, Counseling Skills, Creating a Prenatal Breastfeeding Class, Adult Learning Techniques, plus more.

BreastfeedLA’s Lactation Education Specialist Training was created to provide opportunities for the lactation-specific education required for all individuals aspiring to pursue board-certification as IBCLCs and to supplement the training and education of existing healthcare professionals in the area of human lactation. All concepts, skills, and education in human lactation are taught in accordance with the IBLCE Detailed Content Outline (www.iblce.org) and meet the standards for supporting, breastfeeding practices advised by the World Health Organization, American Academy of Pediatrics, and Baby-Friendly USA.

Course Objectives
Following the didactic presentations and skills competency demonstrations, participants will:
Possess the necessary skills to educate prenatally about breastfeeding in both group and individual settings, including teaching a prenatal breastfeeding class;
Possess sufficient education in basic breastfeeding management to independently provide information and support to a breastfeeding parent via telephone or in a group setting, and while supervised by an IBCLC in a clinic or hospital environment;
Possess the necessary counseling skills to provide sensitive and culturally appropriate care to the breastfeeding parent and family;
Possess clinical judgment sufficient to refer breastfeeding parents appropriately to other healthcare providers including, but not limited to, IBCLCs in cases where medical issues or complex cases of lactation are present; and to
Recognize and discuss solutions to alleviate common barriers to supporting a parent’s choice to exclusively breastfeed.
Completion of this course does not confer a hands-on breastfeeding support certification and participants should be supervised by an IBCLC or working under a separate healthcare credential if providing hands-on lactation care.

Download Brochure Here

**Attendance is mandatory for all 5 class dates including October 16, 18, 23, 25, 30

45-Hour Course Description

This lactation educator training series touches on all areas of the IBLCE Detailed Content Outline (for those preparing to sit for the IBCLC® Board Exam) and meets the Step 2 Baby-Friendly USA Staff Education Requirements, 2016 Edition.

 

Lactation educators work in many settings in our community, including WIC offices, hospitals, providing education alongside doula and midwifery services, and as volunteers. While lactation educators do not provide hands-on breastfeeding support without supervision, the scope of practice for a lactation educator does position the individual to provide prenatal breastfeeding education to groups and individuals, facilitate breastfeeding support groups, and to advocate for breastfeeding in the community and the public health realm.

 

Prerequisites for this course include a high school diploma or GED and a passion for elevating breastfeeding as a public health strategy to imrove disparities in health outcomes.

 

This 45-hour course in lactation education covers basic breastfeeding management techniques such as Positioning, Attachment, Physiology & Hormones of Breastfeeding, Milk Production, Common Breastfeeding Challenges, Counseling Skills, Creating a Prenatal Breastfeeding Class, Adult Learning Techniques, plus more.

 

BreastfeedLA’s Lactation Education Specialist Training was created to provide opportunities for the lactation-specific education required for all individuals aspiring to pursue board-certification as IBCLCs and to supplement the training and education of existing healthcare professionals in the area of human lactation. All concepts, skills, and education in human lactation are taught in accordance with the IBLCE Detailed Content Outline (www.iblce.org) and meet the standards for supporting, breastfeeding practices advised by the World Health Organization, American Academy of Pediatrics, and Baby-Friendly USA.

 

Course Objectives
Following the didactic presentations and skills competency demonstrations, participants will:
Possess the necessary skills to educate prenatally about breastfeeding in both group and individual settings, including teaching a prenatal breastfeeding class;
Possess sufficient education in basic breastfeeding management to independently provide information and support to a breastfeeding parent via telephone or in a group setting, and while supervised by an IBCLC in a clinic or hospital environment;
Possess the necessary counseling skills to provide sensitive and culturally appropriate care to the breastfeeding parent and family;
Possess clinical judgment sufficient to refer breastfeeding parents appropriately to other healthcare providers including, but not limited to, IBCLCs in cases where medical issues or complex cases of lactation are present; and to
Recognize and discuss solutions to alleviate common barriers to supporting a parent’s choice to exclusively breastfeed.
Completion of this course does not confer a hands-on breastfeeding support certification and participants should be supervised by an IBCLC or working under a separate healthcare credential if providing hands-on lactation care.
